DWI / DUI Defense

The Breathalyzer Reading Is Not The Last Word: Our DWI Defense Team Is Known For Its Aggressive Representation In Drunk Driving Cases.

When you are charged with driving while intoxicated (DWI), you are, practically speaking, guilty until proven innocent.

With so much at stake, you need a criminal defense attorney who can cast doubt on the prosecution's case. Are the breath test results reliable? Did the officer have a valid reason to pull you over? Our law firm will aggressively challenge your drunk driving arrest to beat the charges or substantially reduce your penalties.

Certified Alcotest Operators and Experienced DWI Trial Attorneys

Joseph P. Rem Jr. is Certified by the Supreme Court of New Jersey as a Criminal Trial Attorney. Mr. Rem is also one of the few attorneys in New Jersey who is certified as an operator of the Alcotest 7110, the primary breath testing device used by law enforcement in this state. As such, he is uniquely qualified to raise technical challenges to the blood-alcohol content (BAC) reading upon which a DWI prosecution is based.

In addition to having an in-depth knowledge of the Alcotest machine, we will closely examine the reason for the traffic stop and exhaust all defenses to put our clients in the best position for dismissal, reduced charges and alternatives to jail and license suspension. We are experienced trial attorneys and have taken hundreds, if not thousands, of DWI cases to trial.
